-&lt;p&gt;We’ve had a flurry of activity, with several meetups in the planning process and more popping up globally over time. As diversity of contributors is a core ASF value, this geographic spread is exciting for the community. Here’s a picture from the latest Apache Beam meetup organized at Lyft in San Francisco:&lt;/p&gt;

-&lt;h2 id=&quot;why-community-engagement-matters&quot;&gt;Why community engagement matters&lt;/h2&gt;
-&lt;p&gt;Why we need a strong Apache Beam community:&lt;/p&gt;
-&lt;ul&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;We’re receiving lots of code contributions and need committers to review those and help onboard new contributors to the project.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;We want people to feel a sense of ownership to the project. By fostering this level of engagement, the work becomes even more exciting.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;A healthy community has a further reach and leads to more growth. More hours can be contributed to the project as we can spread the work and ownership.&lt;/li&gt;
-&lt;/ul&gt;
-
-&lt;p&gt;Why are we organizing these summits:&lt;/p&gt;
-&lt;ul&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;We’d like to give folks a place to meet, congregate, and share ideas.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;We know that offline interactions often changes the nature of the online ones in a positive manner.&lt;/li&gt;
-  &lt;li&gt;Building an active and diverse community is part of the Apache Way. These summits provide an opportunity for us to engage people from different locations, companies, and backgrounds.&lt;/li&gt;
